Well, hopefully we might at least get a half decent Eneco route now. Could be so much greater than it is.
yeah, falls short of what it should be.

But that final stage is most promising at the very least.
 
Of course, using a climb need not mean it's used in the finale. It could be in the first 50 km of a stage, like in the 2004 Tour.

But let's hope for a meaningful Flanders stage, with the Muur in the finale.

as mentioned in the article the next 3 editions will all end on the climb.
 
Hushovd's wife is pregnant again. Unfortunately the baby is scheduled to be born in July (during TDF).

I'm starting to suspect that Hushovd is actually planning to skip the TDF, which would explain the Giro participation. He said last week that he would do the TDF though, but will BMC include him on the team if there's a great risk that he will drop out to be with his wife?

well regardless that should make for a good finish, considering the other avilable terrain around.
Just read a new article today and now it says it will indeed finish on the Muur 3 times the next 5 years. Pretty cool!

No wait, the finish will be on the Vesten of the Muur and not the top it self.

Trying to remember Beyond The Peloton, wasn't his last one born during the Tour?

edit: oh it might've been Ronde or San Remo actually
